Nature’s Way

Hi everyone, I hope you are all enjoying getting out and about. Make the most of everyday and each other, show the ones you love that you care, Enjoy nature at its finest, and keep its beauty everlasting.

I found this beautiful poem that i thought I must share with you all

Upon a nice mid-spring day,
Let’s take a look at Nature’s way.
Breathe the scent of nice fresh air,
Feel the breeze within your hair.

The grass will poke between your toes,
Smell the flowers with your nose.
Clouds form shapes within the skies,
And light will glisten from your eyes.

Hear the buzzing of the bees,
Climb the tallest willow trees.
Look across the meadow way,
And you shall see a young deer play.

Pick the daisies as they grow,
Watch a gentle cold stream flow.
Know the sounds of water splash,
Catch its glimmer in a flash.

When altogether all seems sound,
Lay yourself upon the ground.
Take a moment to inhale,
And listen to Nature tell her tale…

Laugh Out Loud Quotes

Hi everyone, Here in the Uk we are slowly returning back to normality, whatever that is, businesses are slowly beginning to open up once again, and resume their daily duties, you can sure tell that shops, pubs and hairdressers have started opening up again, as there are humungous queues coming from everywhere you look, customers have even started queuing as early as 3am in the morning, That’s dedication for you, I, like so many others, was nicely tucked up in bed.

Today’s post is about Laugh Out Loud Quotes, I thought that I would do them as we all need to let off steam and have our laugh out loud moments, as we all need to smile a little more and laugh as loud as we can, for as long as we can. To start to enjoy life, if this pandemic as taught us nothing else is to enjoy every second of every day and to cherish it with all our hearts.

We began laughing from an early age, as children, we would laugh a lot, and into our teenage years, but as we get older, we don’t seem to laugh as much, I don’t know whether its because we are too busy, and our lives have just got in the way or that we have forgotten to laugh and have fun like we did when were kids. but whatever the reason is, we have to laugh more, as it relieves tension and stress, and it plays a part in staying healthy and overall it makes you feel a whole lot happier. Laughter is the perfect tonic for a happier and healthier life.
